I want to apologise, I in no way called your motorhome a fraud.

I for one use the names Airstream and Argosy interchagably. I love them all. I think everyone on the forums would back me up on that!

To the second part of your above statment, I have seen titles that had the wrong Year, the wrong weight, the wrong brand of vehicle and an inacurate vin number. I by the way made no reference to your titles validity in my original post nor do I now.

Your Motorhome is cool whatever it is.

Why your buyer cares one way or the other on this particular motohome I have no idea. At the end of the day it will have steel end caps no matter what it was named when it was new, Airstream or Argosy by Airstream.

On my Airstream motorhome if you look at the drivers side of the dash thru the windshield on the side there is a sticker with the Vin and build date and it says built by Airsteam Inc, I am sure if it were an Argosy it would say Argosy there.

Do you have this sticker? What does it say?

Best of luck

79 Was a transition year for the motorhomes, moving from Argosy to Airstream naming. One of the reasons was that when the motohromes first came out dealers and "purists" were not happy with them being named Airstreams at all, in fact owners were not allowed into the WBCCI unti years later.
Whether or not you have an Argosy or an Airstream in name, the rarity and the desirability is still there. There have been polished or painted Argosy's, some painted silver some beige or eggshell as was the factory shade, some color painted Airstreams ( seen one in white), others polished out, some a mix of both. Interesting to see so many variations.
What I did notice on the one pictured above is that it doesn't have the center striped area. I guess this started a bit later also.

Thank you all for the education- it is amazing what a wealth of information is available in this forum, and how generous you all are in sharing it. Sorry if I was a little touchy there, it seemed we were about to plunge back into the argument, which I thought had been resolved (and I thought the mini cooper fraud picture was hilarious). At any rate, the airstream is not only sold, it is being shipped to jolly England, where it will be a mobile photo studio for a couple of fashion photographers! They promise to send pictures of the old twinkie draped in beautiful supermodels, which I promise to post here.

Janet, I am afraid I am one of those weak souls who doesn't like bringing housework along on vacation. Give me a tent in the mountains or a luxury hotel, but don't make me cook and clean house when I don't have to! (In other words, we will be getting another airstream when every Hilton in the county shuts down for good.)

LOL - I can see your point. We were camping a couple of weeks ago (in trailer) and some folks a few sites down had pizza delivered to their 5th wheel door!
